Wow. What I get from this is a whole heaping mouthful of cocoa and some fruit. Mainly cocoa though. Like Sil noted, maybe something that might read as smoke hovering around. I like these a lot.

Used 2 pearls in a 6 oz pot. Let steep as I sipped. I think 3-4 minutes was the range where the pearls were fully opened and I started to get more than a lightly flavored hot water. :) Went up through about 7 minutes and while it cooled off, it didn’t turn bitter.

Sweetened, unsweetened, or bittersweet cocoa?

unsweetened, not at all bitter

Cool, thanks!

See now this is why I’m in trouble – dragon pearl black is another area that I haven’t really explored that much – this sounds like something I should look into… :))
